2015-02-28; Trying to copy Sheltering Tree


I have been eying the new stamps that are out by Stampin’ Up. One of the very popular sets by the name of sheltering tree is really got me wondering if I can recreate something like it with what I have on hand. The answer is, yes I can; sort of. I don’t have the exact look but I do have lots of trees and splotches to create the dotted background. Here is my first attempt…

The sentiment is something that I picked up at a rummage sale. It says on the wood block that it is by the Delafield Stamp Company…Just a few miles from where I live. When I first got the stamp I looked around to see if they were still in business; sadly no. But isn’t it perfect for an image with a tree? The sentiment is stamped on vellum, attached with eyelets and a flower added to finish it off.

This looks messy close up, but nicer when you back away. The splotch in the background is from the SU set French Foliage. I used that as my filler then added leaves and some small stamped flowers. On top of that I added a tiny punched flower and filled it with a 3-d paint for the flower centers.

    I have the SU Sheltering Tree set that still hasn’t seen ink. That sentiment would be perfect! (Delafield, WI ??? – I know where that is… sister used to live there.)

    I wish the company was still there! I would be there in a heartbeat. I only live a few mules from there.

    You’re right… perfect sentiment. And your punched flowers look like ready made embellishments that you can get at the craft stores!
